Most people who are contemplating the end of a relationship and all that goes with it are concerned about the possible legal costs. That’s a reasonable concern – there are plenty of stories in the media about some frankly extraordinary legal fees that have apparently been charged to people who have been involved in the Family Court process.

Whilst we can’t pretend that legal fees are not significant, they do not have to be stratospheric. We are also very conscious that in family law proceedings there are other costs that people should keep in mind – the emotional toll of being involved in the Family Court process should not be underestimated, and the Court process takes up a very large amount of time

It is a matter of priority to us in the Family Law team at Aylward Game Solicitors to provide our clients with practical, realistic, down-to-earth advice. It would often be easier for us to tell people what they want to hear –  to tell potential clients that they can achieve an outcome that they would like rather than what they are more likely to get. But for us, that is not the right way to proceed. We will always provide you with our honest opinion, based on many years of experience in conducting family law matters, as to what a likely outcome will be. That way, you can minimize the amount of legal fees you spend pursuing an unrealistic outcome, and give yourself the best chance of resolving matters with a lower bill from us, less animosity with your ex, and more time to get on with your life.

So whilst there is no simple answer to how much a divorce will cost, we are sure that being realistic from the start will help to keep your costs under control.
